Comments— Very smooth going this week. It is easy to maintain a project when you are not leaving the house. It is all clock work. I get dressed in the morning. Tripp takes my photo every afternoon, and then I post it on Instagram the next day. I know that I should actually be posting it on the day, but I like to think of it as Alaskan lag time. Back in the day, newsreels were delivered overnight to Alaska by plane and then broadcast the day after. I’m kind of doing the same thing. But the only people who know this are the half a dozen people reading this document. It is our little secret.

Comments— I have three comments this week. One, Kato, my orange cat, has decided that he is now participating the project. He runs outside with us and immediately works his way into the photo shoot. Two, I fully realize how knowing  that I am going to have my picture taken every day has upped the maintenance and does affect what I wear everyday. Three, I feel on top of this project right now and that always feels good.
